Full-Screen Background Image (9 posts)

    Hello all,

    I'm looking for help in achieving a certain effect on my WordPress site.

    I want to have a full screen image background that can shuffle through multiple pictures. I would also prefer if these pictures could somehow be added/changed through the back-end admin area in WordPress.

    Is there anyway to do this? Would a plugin be required?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you want to implement it yourself,
    you may want to check out Supersized.

    and here's the tutorial how you can integrate it into WordPress.

    Thanks for the links, man. I'll check them out.

    I was JUST looking at Supersized and trying to figure out how to integrate it with WordPress.

    After looking at the links, I found that there is even a plugin that integrates Supersized with WordPress for you.

    One thing though is that the way you upload/change images is by putting them in a specific folder on your site. Is there a WordPress plugin that allows for the uploading/changing of images into a specific directory. Preferably something that loads the images and allows you to see what's in the directory for modifications/deletion or to add new images.

    Thanks!

    Did you check out NextGEN Gallery?

    It may work for you.

    Yeah, I've used NextGEN quite a few times. I wasn't aware that you could have a gallery be in a certain directory. Is this a capability of NextGEN?

    If you go to Gallery > Options,
    under General Options, you can set up the gallery path.

    Hope that's what you are after :)
